_____________________________________________________ In the subway train the conversation turned to the merits and demerits of various ways of preserving health. One stout, florid man held forth with great eloquence on the subject. "Look at me!" he said. "Never a day's sickness in my life, and all due to simple food. Why, gentlemen," he continued, "from the age of twenty to that of forty I lived an absolutely simple regular life --- no effeminate delicacies, no late hours, no extravagances. Every day, in fact, summer and winter, I was in bed regularly at nine o'clock and up again at five in the morning. I worked from eight to one, then had dinner--a plain dinner, mark my words: after that, an hour's exercise; then.." "Excuse me, sir," interrupted the facetious stranger in the corner, "but what were you in prison for???" ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Misty Brock, 39, Funiak Springs, Florida Florida woman arrested for meth after claiming children are missing A woman from DeFuniak Springs who initially claimed her two children had been kidnapped was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and false 911 calls after her children were found safe and sound, according to a press release. Misty Michelle Brock, 39, was charged with false 911 calls, resisting an officer without violence and making a false report to law enforcement by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. She was additionally charged with possession of paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell. According to JCSO, Brock called dispatch reporting that her two children, ages two and five, had gone missing from her vehicle at the Chevron Station on Highway 231 and that she believed they were in a semi-truck that had just departed the area. The call triggered a response from JSCO, along with FHP, Cottondale Police, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and Houston County Sheriff’s Office as a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) was issued for the semi-truck. During the course of the investigation, deputies noted that Brock displayed several signs that she was under the influence of an illegal substance. A review of security footage showed no children in Brock’s car. Brock was allegedly unable to provide consistent information about her travel itinerary or even what her children were wearing. A JCSO Investigator traveled to the children’s father’s home, where they were located and determined to have been all day. Contact had also been made with Brock’s mother who provided the same information. When deputies tried to relay this information to Brock she stated those children were impostors, according to the press release. During the investigation, several items of paraphernalia were allegedly found in Brock’s purse, along with five grams of “high grade” methamphetamine. As she was being transported to the jail, Brock was reportedly claiming to see her children under vehicles.
Tech Support Pits From: Helga Re: MS Office or Libre Office Dear Webby What is the difference between MS Office and Open Office? I have to get one of them. Which one do you recommend? Helga Dear Helga The biggest diffeernce that I can see is that you can install Open Office on a shirt pocket USB hard drive and run it from there when you plug it into any computer's USB port. And unlike Microsoft Office, it is free. With MS Office you would need to buy a license and pay annual license fees for each machine, with the free Open Office you got everything, from settings and preferences to your documents, spreadsheets and pictures on your portable hard drive or thumb drive, and basically just "borrow" the keybaord and the printer and hardware of the computer that you plug it into. The included features are about the same. Whichever one you learn, that's the one you will be good at, and that one will be your preferred choice. There is no single feature that I an think of that is available in only one of them, except maybe the ability to create PDF files. You can do that with Libre Office, but if you have MS Office, you need to shell out another $450 to get Adobe Acrobat Professional to do the same. Microsoft was going to include it, but backed off at the last minute, when Adobe threatened to sue. Seems there was more copying than inspiration involved. Since you don't have either one yet, and would not have to un-learn and trade the peculiarities of one of them for those of the other, I would recommend Libre Office. You can download it free at https://www.libreoffice.org/ Have FUN DearWebby

The newly wed wife said to her husband when he returned from work: "I have great news for you. Pretty soon we're going to be three in this house instead of two." The husband started glowing with happiness and kissing his wife said: "Oh darling, I'm the happiest man in the world." But then she said: "I'm glad that you feel that way because tomorrow morning my mother moves in with us."

At a nursing home in Miami, Florida, a group of Senior Citizens were sitting around talking about their ailments: "My arms are so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one. "Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee," replied another. "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a third, to which several nodded weakly in agreement. "My blood pressure pills make me dizzy,".... another went on. "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head. Then there was a short moment of silence. "Well, it's not that bad," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank God we can all still drive." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Saving Energy When Drying Clothes It's best to keep your dryer hot by running one load after another.
